This Shark Could Be Oldest Living Vertebrate At 512
The oldest vertibrate they tagged recently and the oldest vertibrate aren't quite the same thing.
Finally something older than me
Wouldn't it be great to discover how it lived so long and apply it to ourselves.
They have never been that sure on the age of older sharks or crocodiles to for that matter. A crocodile can regenerate a wound even in stinking polluted water they have been trying to figure out how it can do that for some time. You think you are Saurian Dundee ??
If that shark did live that long, there would've been a factor of luck to do with its survival, which would be hard to apply to our lives, since we live quite different lives to sharks, but I get what you're getting at .
I could deal with the vertical pupils but i reckon the scaly skin would get ichy. So no, I guess not.
Hard to believe it.
I'd be nice if a human could live that long too..
Don't you have to cut them open to measure the growth rings?
Errr... that might be trees...
